just four words

The four most important words in my online vocabulary right now are:

I see things differently.

We’re divided in our loyalties.
We’re divided in our perspectives.
We’re divided in our politics
and that has proved to be divisive.

I knew these people before election day,
and I still know them now.
They are still good people,
helpful people, family,
friends and neighbors.

They work hard,
choose well,
and do the best they can
to get life done right.

Something has come between us.

This is what rancor does,
causing passion to forget
its better half has already
come.

We may see things differently.

But the only four words
I want to have said
to anyone I say a final goodbye to
are:

I love you, too.
